Shin Megami Tensei IV Final – Debut Trailer And Information

We know Atlus lifted the lid on the latest Shin Megami Tensei title for Nintendo 3DS earlier this week. However, we have now been granted a look at the debut trailer for the game, which you can view above. It has been reported that Shin Megami Tensei IV Final will follow a neutral route and will feature multiple endings. Here’s some juicy details from the NicoNico Live stream translated by Siliconera.

  • Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final won’t be like Shin Megami Tensei IV with the Chaos and Law routes, but it will be all “Neutral” but with multiple endings.
  • They say that you don’t need to have played or completed Shin Megami Tensei IV to enjoy Final, but there will be references here and there that will bring a smile to those that have played it.
  • The “gauntlet” shown on the protagonist is actually his smartphone. They say that the ones worn in Shin Megami Tensei IV could be considered a smartphones as well, but in a different form.
  • Asahi can be considered the heroine of the game. She’s a bit younger compared to most Shin Megami Tensei characters at age 15.
  • They say that the way Navarre died was very petty, and had a good laugh about it. Additionally, he’ll have more of a role in Final than he did in Shin Megami Tensei IV.
  • The “Partner” system will be something different for Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final. There will be other human characters besides Asahi who will appear as Partners.
  • The “Assist Attack” system will have your Partners show up when you’re in a pinch. You’ll also get to “raise” human characters as well as demons.
  • Conversations for recruiting demons have been completely renewed.
  • The main character will be a silent protagonist.
  • Demons will be able to use various types of magic, even if they don’t specialize at them. When they use the magic they specialize at, they’ll be more effective.
  • Demon stats have been completely changed up, so those who played Shin Megami Tensei IV will experience something different.
  • Yamai says that Isabeau will be in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final, and as for Flynn he says “stay tuned for more.”
  • He also reassures fans that Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final doesn’t mean “final” of the series, but rather, the end of Shin Megami Tensei IV. He mentions that Shin Megami Tensei V, Shin Megami Tensei VI, and so on will still keep coming, so not to worry.

    1. I usually freak out whenever I play SMT or Devil Survivor, but I love the games too much to stop.

  1. Called it; this game’s story is basically what happened immediately after the ceiling was created, and the story is told from the perspective of those left behind.
